Description
 
Located in the Loire valley, the Saumur-Champigny appellation specialises in red wines made from Cabernet Franc. Thierry Germain came to the region from Bordeaux in 1991 and quickly became a leader in terms of quality. His low-yielding vines are worked according to biodynamic principles and although the top cuvees see some oak the intensity of flavour in the fruit ensures that wood never dominates.

From Senonian limestone soils, the 2016 Saumur Blanc Clos Romans opens with a very elegant and subtle bouquet of white flowers and caramelly notes (crème caramel). Tight but intense and very mineral on the palate, this is a concentrated and structured as well as elegant and persistent Chenin with ripe and even lush fruit. The finish is aromatic and delicate but also firm and very long, structured by fine tannins and the refreshing minerality. This is a great and complex Saumur, and for Thierry, one of the best whites he has produced, along with the 2014. The pH of the 2016 is 2.9, so no malolactic is done here. Wine Advocate 93+ (2016)
